Hush—'tis the lullaby Time is singing— Hush, and heed not, for all things pass. Hush, ah hush! and the Scythes are swinging Over the clover, over the grass! —ANDREW LANG White Butterflies Fly, white butterflies, out to sea, Frail pale wings for the wind to try, Small white wings that we scarce can see, Fly. Some fly light as a laugh of glee, Some fly soft as a low long sigh; All to the haven where each would be, Fly. —ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE The Green Gnome Ring, sing! ring, sing! pleasant Sabbath bells!

O come and hear the Pine Lady, Up in the haunted wood! The stars are rising, the moths are flitting, The owls are calling, The dew is falling; And, high in the boughs Of her haunted house The moon and she are sitting. Out on the moor the night-jar drones Rough-throated love, The beetle comes With his sudden drums And many a silent unseen thing Frightens your cheek with its ghostly wing; While there above, In a palace builded of needles and cones, The pine is telling the moon her love, Telling her love on the moonbeam strings— O have you seen the Pine Lady?

" He had not been in merry England A month but barely three, When languishing thoughts came into his mind, And Nancybell fain would he see. So he rode and he rode along the highway Till he came to yonder town; He heard the sound of a chapel bell, And the ladies were mourning around. " The lid of the coffin he opened up, The linens he folded down, And now he kissed the pale, pale lips, And the tears came trickling down.
